Benefit of Bilingual Education

South Australia’s first bilingual school

Plympton International College is proud to provide an authentic bilingual English and Chinese education of the highest standard. Our mission is to prepare our students for their future, to be critical thinkers, innovators and leaders in an ever-changing world.

The benefits of learning another language are well established:

  • Improved brain development, cognitive flexibility and, enhanced problem-solving
 
  • The ability to communicate with an even great number of people, both personally and professionally
 
  • Broader career opportunities; a second language gives job candidates an edge.
 
  • A greater appreciation and understanding of Chinese culture.
 
  • Improved English literacy.
 
  • Learning another language requires students to use different ‘systems’ within the brain. This causes them to compare and contrast Chinese language with English, providing them with an insight into how English works, and enhancing their ability to read and write.
 
  • Improved Mathematics skills. There is a scientific correlation between learning Chinese and an enhanced mathematical ability.
